Manu Chao Proxima Estacion: Esperanza on Import 2LP + CD

A musical globalista with a rebel rock 'n' roll heart, there's nobody quite like Manu Chao. Multilingual and multicultural, Manu has been called the natural heir to Joe Strummer and Bob Marley and serves as an inspiration to the world's downtrodden and dispossessed. A huge star in Latin America and elsewhere, he draws audiences in excess of 100,000 strong around the globe. 

2001's Proxima Estacion: Esperanza ("Next Stop: Hope") - named after Madrid Metro's Line 4 - is the former Mano Negra frontman's second full-length solo release and follow-up to his breakout debut 1998's Clandestino. Once again incorporating multiple languages including English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Arabic, and themes of travel, party, and dance, the Caribbean flavored 17-song set is highlighted by such festive fare as "Merry Blues," "La Primavera," and "Me Gustas Tú."

"In Europe and Latin America, Manu Chao has long been a rock god on the scale of Bob Marley. But here in the U.S., it took this 2001 gem to give music lovers a taste of his wild-ass greatness. A Spaniard born in France, Chao rocks his acoustic guitar to horns and beatboxes, full of crackpot humor, singing in English, Spanish, French or whatever language he feels like at the moment. "Me Gustas Tu" is the one for the ages: a lazy reggae-rock guitar riff, a chorus you can't stop singing even if you don't get the language, and Chao rambling about crucial topics from politics to marijuana." - #65 on Rolling Stone's 100 Best Albums of the 2000's

"One of the most important musicians in the world." - Chris Blackwell (Founder of Island Records)
